Around The World In Blogs~
And what, you may ask -does this have to do with "Herb Gardening."
Maybe nothing, maybe more than we know...I'm certain of one fact, herbs are grown and used all over the world, in fact long before America was a thought, herbs were being utilized for great things.
The point of this post is to introduce you to a blogger I recently met from the Ukraine, she is Marina Demchuck, a most talented writer and story teller.
I know what a gift good story-telling is, I've been exposed to a few great ones and not just anyone can deliver. It is a gift, it can't be learned...maybe perfected to a point, but too much perfection will spoil the gift.
When I read Marina's writings I am transported to the Ukraine, I can, in my minds eye see the surroundings, hear the language, (that I don't understand), and feel a connection to a part of the world that holds some of my family history.
My hubby is of German/Austrian, French and Scottish descent, his great grandparents were Russian Jews, who escaped to America in the 1940's My genetic heritage is from England and Wales.
From time to time I come across people and information that click....this is one of those clicks.
I believe we can learn from and get a small glimpse of another side of our world and it's people through this delightful woman's blog.
Who would have thought 30 years ago that a simple click of a thing called a mouse- could transport one to the other side of the globe...we must not waste the option.
I would like to know from Marina what the most used herbs are in her country, village, or family.
I hope she visits here and becomes a part of our exchanges.
I'm educating myself on White sage and Golden seal....any thoughts...anyone ?
